100 Years of Solitude 10.0 – Cultural Revolution

100 Years of Solitude 10.0 – Cultural Revolution is a cutting-edge theatre piece co-produced by Drama Box and Zuni Icosahedron (Hong Kong), as part of Esplanade’s Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts. Staged on 1 Feb 2012, this work was performed completely without dialogue, and features an arresting mix of image and sound. It featured 12 Singaporean actors/directors, a Kun Opera master from Beijing and students from School of the Arts, Singapore (SOTA) & Hong Kong School of Creativity (HKSC).

In this photo documentation, we got some of the students from SOTA and HKSC to give us a quote on what "revolution" means to them!

Cultural Revolution

A major political movement that took place in China in 1966, started by then Chairman Mao Tse Tung. It is officially recorded as a movement to enforce socialism by eradicating capitalism, maintain the purity of the Communist Party, and find the correct path to build a socialist society. It lasted for about 10 years, and ended in 1976 when Mao passed away and the Gang of Four was busted.
